MOREHEAD, Ky. (May 17, 2016) — Morehead State University’s Engineering and Technology Management (ETM) Spring 2016 graduating class achieved a 92 percent pass rate on the Certified Technology Manager (CTM) Exam, with 35 out of 38 students attaining a passing score.
The exam is nationally administered through the Association of Technology, Management and Applied Engineering (ATMAE) to certify graduates of ATMAE accredited programs.

A minimum score of 95 out of 160 in the categories of Leadership, Self-Management, Systems, Processes, Operations, People, Project, Quality, Risk and Safety is currently required to qualify for certification.
CTM is the initial certification status awarded to applicants who meet ATMAE’s requirements for certification. CTM certification holders may report continuing education activity to qualify for Certified Senior Technology Manager (CSTM) status. ATMAE Certification recognizes expertise in a specific field, a mark of distinction that sets the certification holder apart. ATMAE Certification provides external validation of knowledge and competence in the discipline.
“MSU’s Engineering and Technology Management students take the Certified Technology Manager (CTM) exam prior to graduation in their senior year. The Chair of the ATMAE Board of Certification reports that the historical average national pass rate for the CTM exam is 65 percent and MSU’s ETM students earned a 92 percent pass rate in spring 2016,” said Dr. Ahmad Zargari, School of Engineering and Information Systems associate dean. “We are proud of ETM faculty and graduating seniors for their success.”
